Faculty, Staff, and Graduate Students

At Upper House, we aim to be a resource for those who teach, research, and serve in the university. Our activities—from public events to learning cohorts—help faculty, staff, and graduate students explore, in community, the big questions animating today’s academic landscape.

We encourage the University of Wisconsin-Madison community to connect with us, and here are a few resources to begin your journey.

Colorblind Christianity | Jesse Curtis

November 28, 2022

Our guest today helps us understand that “colorblindness” has tended not to be a virtue, and is especially difficult to defend in a church context that has been shaped by American history. Historian Jesse Curtis has written a new book, The Myth of Colorblind Christians, that challenges the idea that there ever was a truly colorblind tradition of Christianity.


The Heart of Performance | Euimin Shin

November 14, 2022

Upper House's Director of Program Curation, Melissa Shackelford, sits down with our very own artist in residence Euimin Shin for a conversation to explore what it’s like to be a Christian who is also a performing artist.
